Work Experience

Other Pillow

Senior Designer

An independent project that grew out of my senior thesis at CCA. After investing resting various sleep and resting products for a semester, I went on to design a series of luxury experimental body pillows. After enough people asked me about purchasing them, I began to make more. The pillows can be seen at otherpillow.com. I’m currently looking for retailers.
